Diagnosis

Derma Scan:

It is a simple box that uses UV light to show sun rays that is invisible to the naked eye. A suntan is harmful, tanning (under the sun or in a tanning bed) is an outward sign of internal skin damage. Derma Scan is NOT a skin cancer screening.

Comprehensive Dermal Scanning
Comprehensive derma scan is non-invasive and objective skin assessment is somewhat akin to a full body health check-up. Unlike other systems in the market which simply photographs your skin's level of sun damage, our Derma Scan technology uses 7 different parameters to provide an impressive range of data relating to different aspects of your skin's health. Skin care experts recommend this professional assessment to be taken at least twice a year to track the status of your skin.

 

Vcare Skin Clinics aims to give a precise evaluation of the dermal condition. Free radical damage, illness, poor diet, stress and pollution all play a role in this aging process, which can be viewed within a click of a button. With aging the collagen support layer in the dermis becomes unstable and fragmented, weakening the support structure to the epidermis. Collagen fibers enhance elasticity and rejuvenate the skin. Through the derma scan technology, we can now see that the treatments work deep within the dermis, initiating an excitatory response that recreates.

Skin Analyser:

The Skin and Hair Analyser is a microscopic camera that connects directly through a USB adaptor to a PC or laptop, which allows you to analyze the skin for a closer more magnified look

  • A hygienic and convenient method to clean using a single L.O.C Wipe.

  • Easy to operate.

 

The Skin and Hair Analyser analyses the following:

  1. Clogging and Blackheads
    Clogging and blackheads result from dirt, oil, and makeup being trapped in open pores, causing the skin to become clogged and blackheads or breakouts appear.

  2. Oily Skin
    Oily skin is caused by overactive oil (sebaceous) glands. The skin appears shiny and thick and breakouts may appear on this skin type.

  3. Pigmentation
    Pigmentation can be caused by exposure to the UV rays like the sun. Some hormones may also cause pigmentation on the skin.

  4. Dry Skin
    Dry skin is caused by minimal oil on the skin, which may cause the skin to flake. It is essential to use products that contain ingredients to nourish dry skin.

  5. Pimple on Hair Line
    The Skin and Hair Analysis can also reveal any problems on the scalp.

Woods Lamp Examination
A Wood lamp examination is used when certain skin infections like acne & fungal infections are suspected. Here the skin is illuminated with a UV light in a dark room as the ultraviolet light makes some fungi or bacteria glow brightly. The light also accentuates the skin's pigment visible, which causes pigmentation abnormalities such as vitiligo.
